Huge thanks to fogdog for bringing this one to a crazy ass sour tasting.

A: Pours a nice light golden hue with some cloudiness. The head is light but bubbly. Shows some pretty nice lace.

S: Citric fruit and acid notes from the start. Hints of peaches, with a hint of barn yard funk.

T: Mmm peaches! The citrus is there as well. Hints of hay and barn yard funk. Strawberries make an enterence with lemon zest. Just a touch of oak. Nice balance of sweet and tart.

M: Light zippy carbonation to carry the flavors.

D: Good, my favorite in a sour tasting that included most of the big boys.

Thanks for the trade!

Pours a hazy golden orange. An inch or so of white sandy foam. Smell is sour funk. Lively vinegar and lemon in the aroma. Old blanket mustiness and raw green apples.

Taste is insanely vinous. Unripe grapes, explosive vinegar, acidic lemon ... this is an ass puckeringly sour beer. Bit of a fruit/berry component ... I'd describe it as peach-ified raspberries. Lively peaches lingering on the aftertaste and dancing amongst the flavors. Great balancing fruit to liven up the acidic tartness.

Great carbonation. Really keeps the beer lively, effervescent, and the flavors just keep on popping.

***updating my review. This is as good as it gets.
